    Help with DivX on Mac 10.4.6

    I just got my MacBook this weekend, my first non-windows computer. Been very happy with it, except that I am having problems playing DivX .avi files. I tried to get all the codecs and tried the ffmpegx and DivX Doctor programs, but after many hours of searching I have video but no audio, even with the ac3 audio codec.

    Normally I would figure it our for myself, but I have spent so many hours and did everything the apple/divx forums said and still no audio. Extremely frustrated. Can anyone tell me if I am missing any codec components?
    DivX, msmpeg4v1, msmpeg4v2, on2vp3, 3ivx D4, ac3, xvid are already in the quicktime library. I use QuickTime 7.1.1.

    Thanks in advance.

    hi Kirlex,
    You can try this free software videolan media player.
    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html
    I am not a Mac user, so I dont know if this player any good with Macs.

    Dunno about codecs, but I'd grab vlc from Videolan and expect everything to just work.

    Thank you both, worked like a charm. To say thank you, I can burn you a CD of Pimsleur Cantonese, if you need it.

    Glad it worked... and I'm sure you wouldn't be offering dodgy copies of stuff on this otherwise squeaky-clean forum, right?
